Redfish Technology, Inc. (NYSE:RED), a leading nationwide recruiting company focused on the high tech sectors, announced today that it has opened an office in Costa Rica. This new focus marks Redfish’s second expansion into international territory.
The Costa Rican tech sector experienced a boom when Intel, Infosys and Hewlett Packard moved in. A lively high-tech cluster has evolved with the influx of smaller firms, and a very talented pool of highly educated talent has grown there. The Costa Rican government maintains a pro-U.S. stance and aims to attract high-tech corporations to take advantage of Central America’s most educated, computer literate and disciplined workforce; many Forbes 500 companies operate out of Costa Rica.
The synergies of Redfish’s tech talent matchmaking and a growing tech sector in Costa Rica were the subject of discussion between Rob Reeves, CEO of Redfish Technology and Luis Guillermo Solís, who will be sworn in as president on May 8th. Mr. Solís has promised an international campaign to promote Costa Rica as an investment destination, highlighting its political stability and flourishing tech sector. (more…)
